Winemaking - Owned and run by brothers Maurice and Jacky Barthelme, the Domaine takes its name from the late Albert Mann, the father of Maurice’s wife. Both families have winemaking in their blood; the Mann family has been producing wine since the 17th century, while winemaking history of the Barthelmé’s can be traced back to 1654. Their 22 hectare estate situated near Colmar spans five different Grand Cru areas and produces fruity, aromatic wines that act as an excellent example of what the Alsace has to offer. The family goal is to produce wines that are in harmony with nature and the estate was certified organic in 2000.
What it tastes like - A pale golden-yellow in the glass. On the nose, hints of citrus fruit, red apple and pear. On the palate, concentrated and intense with a compact minerality. Look for notes of quince and green herbs. The finish is crisp and refreshing with a spicy undertone.
